So, I searched the forums and founds only D2 Coil Overs have been used.......anyone have experience with just the springs? They state they have a 2.0" drop which I would love, but would I need a camber kit?:confused::confused::confused:

Stock spring length on YF Sonata?

Hey everyone....just got my D2 springs off the UPS trucK AND will hopefully have them in by this weekend, bit had one question for anyone that has the stock springs out of the car laying around........what is the measurement in the front and back springs from top coil to bottom? I am just curious on the difference before I start digging in because these springs look HUGE! Lol!

Oh.....and I can't find my **** wheel lock anywhere! Smh! May not get anything done!

Okay so install just finished.....took a bit because I went and got a hydraulic spring compressor.

I guess I am going to have to.wait for the settling.......I am impatient too, so that sucks, but this is immediately after the install.

Here is the before........out of order yes, but here it is.

I feel like I don't see much going on, but maybe I was looking for the immediate 2 inch drop.

Guy at our local tire place said he had a set take about 3k miles to fully settle.........I can do that in no time, but again, I am not a patient person. Guess I will have to deal with waiting on this.

Anyway, there it is!

Oh, anyone have tricks for torquing the top nut in the strut? Feels Luke it is just spinning the cylinder the more I turned it......... thanks!

Thanks Tommy. ...... I started taking some pics but the ARK DIY posted on the site was spot on even though it was an Optima which is the same car anyway. I got the springs from D2 racing. They have a site www.d2racing.com which has pricing, but I will send you my price.;)

Nice drop. Keep us updated on the total drop. I would like to get a little lower but don't want to spend the money on coils.

Maybe I am impatient!?

So, I installed my springs yesterday and I know there is settling time, but what is the most drop that some have seen after waiting for the springs to settle?

Also, my front passenger side just seems like it is higher than the rest by about 1/2 inch! I know they are in correctly, but should I check it again to make sure? Anyone have either oft head issues?
